Default Air Bagging an 86 XJ6

Does anyone have any information on airbagging
an 86 XJ6? I found a couple pictures of some but
not that much info. I know there is a guy they
call Brewski from Austria, I think. I saw it on car domains website. Here is a link to it http://www.cardomain.com/ride/298073...uar-xj-series/. Also I think this is his also Jaguar Specialties. It's the third car down on the page the 74 XJ12.
I tried finding him but had no luck. I think I will call jag specialities tomorrow and see if they can get me in touch. I would just like
a starting point like which bags where used, some pictures, ect..
Thanks,
Jim

There is a guy here is Queens NY known as Tesh who did it and I met him and spoke to him in person on how it was done. If you read the article linked below he mentions his friend who passed. Him and his friend were in my garage and we were brain storming on the project. The young man who passed was into Nissans too so we talked Nissans for awhile because I had also been into racing twin turbo Z32's. He died a few month later street racing at high speed on the Southern State parkway. Oddly I was in a terrible 100MPH crash in a Nissan, my head went through the Windshield but I was on the track wearing a helmet Tesh called me to tell me the project was done and was breaking down on the phone telling me about how his friend died. It was a phone call I will never forget because it started euphoric about the coolness of the lowered jag and ended with the reality of his friends fate.


It's this car...

It was done with standard air bags in the front that replaced the springs. The rear was done by welding a perch to the rearward side of the lower control arm and cutting away part of the body to mount the bag and for clearance. forward shock remained in stock location with no springs.

That's a sharp looking Jag! Sad story, but a nice looking ride. Of course, I have a soft spot for baby moons and they look phenomenal offsetting that black finish.
